My church magazine has articles on the state of ministry outreach, but to be honest it has been a while since I have read them. I do recall that when I have read about ministry in and to the Muslim world the results have been positive, which is very exciting. However there is (or was) very little mentioned about the challenges, and I always thought "The results are great, but getting them can't have been easy." I was glad to see that while this book showed that some Muslims are open to hearing about Jesus, it also showed the serious challenges that face those engaged in this work.
As for the book itself: the writing was very interesting but the author switched back and forth between characters constantly; and while there were only a few characters I had a hard time keeping up with them and had to do a search for early instances of the names to remind myself who was who. Reading this on my Kindle, I was constantly wishing the x-ray feature was available for this book.

Although I've known of Brother Andrew for years, I had never read anything he's written. Secret Believers popped up on my Amazon "recommended for you" list because I had ordered Joel Rosenburg's Epicenter and Journey into the Mind of an Islamic Terrorist by Mark Gabriel. Impulsively, I hit my Amazon Prime one click, and the book promptly arrived at my door.

I was interested by the fact that the authors state upfront they've fictionalized the lives of many people in the Islamic world, weaving their stories and personalities together to create a true-to-life picture that shelters the real subjects from harm. Secret Believers starts slowly; it takes a while to explain all this and to establish characters. Nonetheless, I found myself unable to put it down and literally finished it the day it arrived.

I had never thought much about the Christians who are born into Islamic societies. Additionally, it had not occurred to me that there would exist a major chasm between these Christians and Muslims who convert to Christianity--people whom the book terms "Muslim background believers." Because of Brother Andrew's reputation and because of stories I've heard coming from Islamic countries, I believe this book is based fully in truth, and I was deeply moved by the characters' struggles and triumphs.

This book offers something different from many of the books written about the present state of Islam vs. the world. Brother Andrew, while advocating the spread of genuine Christian faith, ends up completely loving Muslims. This is not a hateful or disrespectful book.

I particularly enjoyed seeing how ex-Muslim Christians can move around in a Muslim country, work, marry and have their lives. Islam does not seem to be as completely pervasive in the so-called "Islamic World" as I once thought. I was also interested to see that sometimes the most devout and loving Christians started out as hate filled members of the Muslim Brotherhood. Go figure.

I don't want to overstate it either. Many of these former Muslims pay for their new faith with the ultimate price: a bloody and violent death. But as was once said about the early church "the blood of the martyrs is the seed of the faith" so too do we find a deep vein of Muslims looking for a way out of the hatred.

This book shows that everywhere there are opportunities for Christian belief. I was particularly impressed with the ex Muslim who instead of lamenting that his passport still described him as "Muslim" sees in it rather an opportunity to go to Mecca on the hajj so he can tell people about Jesus Christ!

One gets the impression that much more of this kind of "underground" conversion is going on in the Islamic world than we were once led to believe.

So many people don't realize that Jesus is appearing to many Muslims in visions and dreams because He is the only way to salvation. He loves all people, including Muslims, who, for the most part are indoctrinated in Islam from childhood. At first I didn't believe this was happening, but then I went on the Internet and listened to testimony after testimony about their experiences. This book is good. It tells you what is going on behind closed doors and shows you how much God cares.

This well written book is written like a novel but what the author writes is based on true stories. To the average reader in the West such a manner of life for Christians would be unthinkable, hard even to imagine. Men and women die for their faith. They know before believing that this may well be the case. Even without death the loss of family and loved ones is difficult, but family and friends will cut off relationships with the convert to Christ. There is suspense in this book. There is truth in this book. And there is challenge in this book to end complacency in us and encourage us to become more involved in sharing the Good News.

The book gives a better comprehension of the severe penalties Muslims face when they choose Christianity. It is almost incomprehensible to Christians living in the United States to realize this type of persecution still exists. Pastors will relate to the immense task of shepherding as new Muslim believers are in need of "safe houses", employment, and doctrinal training in their new faith. I felt myself drawn to continue reading this book even when I did not have time in my schedule to do so. My admiration for the perseverance and testimonies of these MBBs has increased tremendously.

Great read! I really appreciate being able to learn about these brave Christians. It really make me feel lucky to live where I do.
A great book to read to understand the level of persecution being suffered by our brothers and sisters in Christ in the Muslim world, so that we might be praying for them, and supporting in whatever way we can - such as through Open Doors International.
